My name is Christy Sloat and I am the author of the newly published, The Brown House. The Brown House follows my character Brylee Branson as she moves from California to New Jersey. Her and her family move into a creepy old house that everyone in the town claims is haunted. For this guest post today I have decided to interview Brylee and ask her all about her experiences in the house.
Christy: Hello Brylee. Tell me a little bit about yourself.
Brylee: Well I am 16 and I hate interviews. They make me seriously nervous.
Christy: That is completely understandable. I was shy at 16 too. Just tell me what you like to do in your spare time.
Brylee: I like to draw. I like to look at my boyfriend Ephraim and capture his face in detail on paper. I also like hanging with my best friend Lynley.
Christy: What was your first impression of New Jersey when you first arrived here?
Brylee: I thought the people talked very weird. But all in all it was pretty. We moved here in the Fall so I enjoyed seeing the trees change.
Christy: Now that your established here in New Jersey what is the best part about it?
Brylee: The beach is pretty cool. I also like to go down to the lake with my boyfriend and draw. He is a photographer so he takes photo’s and I draw.
Christy: Tell me about how you met your boyfriend.
Brylee: I met him through Lynley. He is her older brother. I thought he was the cutest boy I have ever met.
Christy: You live in the brown house. Is it haunted like everyone says?
Brylee: Um. I can’t really say. People should really read the book if they want to know that or not.
Christy: Anything at all?
Brylee: Okay fine. I can say that everyone in town says it’s haunted. My best friend won’t even come over without being scared. I have had some experiences in the house. But that’s all I can say.
Christy: Okay fair enough. How do you like being a character in a book?
Brylee: It’s cool I guess. You brought me to life so I guess I should thank you for that.
Christy: [laughs] Your most welcome. If you could tell the readers anything about the book to make them read it what would you say?
Brylee: I promise that the book is full of suspense, romance, adventure and it has a really cool outlook on the old house. It involves a bunch of cool characters, mostly me. [Giggles] But Ephraim and Lynley have good stories themselves. The stories about the original home owners, the Brown’s are one I will never forget. I would just tell them that you did an awesome job writing it.
Christy: Well thank you Brylee. I their anything you want to ask me?
Brylee: Sure what made you come up with all of us characters? The house especially.
Christy: My husband grew up in your house. After years of hearing him talk about the haunted happenings I decided to make a story out of it. I came up with all of you guys and I loved your character the best. I feel like you are wise beyond your years. You also deal with the strange things that occur with bravery. I think your a lot like my niece Tayler.
Brylee: Wow I didn’t know your husband lived here. That’s pretty cool.
Christy: Yes it is. I want to thank you for this interview. Any last words?
Brylee: Keep us around please. I hope you continue writing about us.
Christy: I promise I will. The next book will come out next summer.
Well that’s is it. Thanks readers for meeting Brylee Branson. She is lovely. If you want to learn more about Brylee, Ephraim and Lynley read ‘The Brown House’.
Some secrets should never be revealed…
Brylee Branson begrudgingly made the excruciating move with her family from the warm sandy beaches of California to small town living in New Jersey. As if she wasn’t miserable enough, they’ve moved into a creepy old house that everyone in the area claims is haunted. Brylee dismisses the idea of ghosts and hauntings, until she begins to see and hear things that can’t be explained…
Brylee has no choice but to seek the help of new friends to unlock the secrets of this place she now calls home. But some secrets should never be revealed. Can the teens find a way to release the spirits imprisoned within the walls? Or will the curse claim them, too?
